Default How much Commission does a Job Agency Recruiter take?

As above. For a full time job.
I applied for a job through an agency online, agent called me and quoted $2600-$2800 for a position which I think is below market rate. A friend of mine working in another company same position draws a salary of $3100. I will be meeting an agent soon before I go for an interview with the company. Thus, I am curious to know if the lower salary quoted by him is because he took a cut or it was quoted by company's HR and he did not take any cut. Or do recruiters earn just by taking a one time amount from company?

I understand that 'market rate' is subjective so please don't flame me. Main thing is still to understand how the recruiters/agents earn. Others is just to provide some context.
